Where does the money go?

Donated funds go into the Friends of El Hogar special account.  They are divided between El Hogar and Project Micah and sent regularly by electronic transfer to the North America offices of each charity.

At El Hogar de Amor y Esperanza, the Friends currently sponsor in particular the education of 2 brothers - Cristian and Misael Mairena Velasquez.  Funds over and above the cost of Cristian and Misael's sponsorship go into Undesignated Funds which are called upon for urgent requirements, for example medical, clothing, food, vehicle, building or school supplies.

You can learn more about needs and sponsorship at El Hogar de Amor y Esperanza by visiting their website.

At Project Micah, Friends' money helps to pay for the wellbeing of the teenagers at both the main house and Leadership House in barrio Buenos Aires, Tegucigalpa.
